Product Description

From Amazon

When Donna Hay's Entertaining was published in the autumn of 1998, Time Out magazine selected it as one of the best cookbooks of the year. It's easy to see why. Few cookbooks manage to be even fractionally as stylish as this one. In which other book would you find a wooden cutlery drawer filled with Thai Leaves and Chicken Baguettes with Fresh Corn Cakes? Or how about Grilled Mango with Coconut Praline? Australia has given birth to some innovative food, and restaurants like the Bather's Pavillion have produced beautiful books. Entertaining is certainly one of the best of these books. Hay, the food editor for Australian Marie Claire, has written a book that offers many elegant and stylish dining ideas. The recipes in Entertaining are divided into 10 sections, from simple picnics and impromptu weeknight dinners to the most sumptuous formal dining occasions. Beautiful photographs accompany most of the recipes, which range from making a Vanilla Vodka to Olive-Crusted Lamb with Couscous Salad to Caramelised Vanilla Risotto Pudding. You'll find information about planning menus and selecting wines, as well as all the basics you'll need for any culinary occasion. Like Hay's The New Cook, Entertaining is the perfect addition to the discerning cook's bookshelf. --Dale Kneen, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
the ingredients in all of Donna Hay's books are simple but the flavors collide perfectly. Just looking at the photographs is inspiring enough to start cooking. I own 2 of her books and am now addicted to getting the full series because i know that each book pays particular attention to quality.

I was an average 'throw it together - if it's edible, good enough' cook. Then my brother (an excellent cook) gave me this book for Christams. I was truly inspired with the photography (every recipe is beautifully presented), so much so that I now take pride in producing chic, simple dishes that are simply delicious. If you consider cooking a chore and need inspiration, this book is a must!

I bought both The New Cook and Entertaining during the same month due to the interesting food pairings and fusion of different ethinic cooking styles. I have not been dissapointed. Most of the recipes are extremely simple to make yet real crowd pleasers! (I feel confident enought with this cookbook to make a recipe without taste-testing it first - not many cookbooks inspire me to do this!) I am an avid cook (mostly vegetarian, some seafood.) The variety and richness of the flavors in this book continually inpsire my desire to create in the kitchen, and i really enjoy just browsing through it to learn about interesting food pairings and unusual combinations. If you'd like a little food adventure, this one's for you!

Donna Hay Always Entertaining June 2 2014
By J. Crowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have most of Donna Hay's cook books because they include ideas for meals that seem to be distinctly different from those I have in other cook books. I am always looking for new ideas about presentation of food for entertaining and unusual recipes. Donna Hay delivers both in this book.
Gorgeous book March 10 2013
By Nikki Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Donna Hay. She has terrific recipes and the most gorgerous cookbooks. I have every single one now. This was missing from my collection. Her food is simple, the recipes concise and there is a photo of each recipe. This is what a cookbook should be.
